3D modelování jako prostředek rozvoje tvořivosti žáků 2. stupně základní školy
SOSNA, Tomáš
The dissertation deals with the issue of creativity development using 3D modeling. In the introductory, theoretical part of the work, defining the concept of creativity is the first step towards understanding its essence and mechanisms. Defining the term 3D modeling is key to understanding its role and importance in the context of work. Although the connection of creativity with 3D modeling has great potential in the field of education and development of pupils' abilities, it is practically unexplored. At the same time, the teaching of 3D modeling is slowly but surely entering the curriculum of elementary schools and appears to be a good and modern means of teaching technical subjects that can develop the creativity of pupils. In addition, the possibility of the influence of a curricular document from the field of technology on creativity was investigated. The overlap with the planned major revisions of the RVP ZV is also mentioned, especially in the area of 3D modeling. In order to clarify the relationship between 3D modeling and creativity, quantitative research was carried out in the practical part of the work among pupils of the 2nd grade of primary schools. The research was divided into two areas A and B. In part A, the development of creativity in the control group, in which the teaching of technical education took place in the classic way, was compared with the development of creativity in the experimental group, in which the teaching took place with the support of 3D modeling tools. In part B, the development of creativity in the control group with 3D modeling lessons was compared with the development of creativity in the experimental group, in which the 3D modeling lessons were additionally supplemented with specially designed creative tasks. Data collection took place in the form of testing students using Torrance's Figural Test of Creative Thinking. The obtained results were processed using the Wilcoxon paired test and the Mann and Whitney U-test in the statistical program R. The main part of the work describes the results of the research, which are discussed from the perspective of the goal of the work and partial steps. In addition, the final summary discusses the possibilities for further research, which emerged from the results of this work, and identified recommendations for further investigation.
Psychoactive plants in creative activities
The diploma thesis deals with the effect of psychoactive plants on creativity. A list of these plants was made with detailed descriptions of their properties, uses and effects on the organism. The list was compiled from literature, online sources and media. Subsequently, a questionnaire was developed to analyze user experiences with the selected psychoactive plants, which was part of the practical part of the thesis. Drawing and painting were the most common creative activities performed. Teachers emerged as the second most frequent group of respondents due to the questionnaire's focus on art schools. An important finding from the questionnaire survey is that although the link between creativity and art making was not confirmed as strong, respondents still perceived psychoactive plants positively. These plants may have unconsciously influenced the respondents' thinking, which may be related to possible flashbacks (experiences or symptoms associated with the use of psycho-active substances that return without actual substance use). Another reason may have been the use of the plant prior to creation, which led to arousal and increased motivation for creative activity. The survey also revealed how respondents view the future of plants. Among the most common responses were medicinal purposes, where these plants may be explored for their potential in treating various psychological disorders, as well as for relaxation, improving mental health, enhancing concentration and relaxation. Today's studies suggest that psychoactive plants have the potential to help treat certain ailments under controlled conditions and at low doses. This work provides a basis for further research, and information gathered from the questionnaire survey can further explore the relationship between these plants and the creative process
Scientific discoveries inspired by psychoactive plants
This thesis deals with psychoactive plants with substances that have been used to increase creativity, openness and insight in the thinking of scientists. The aim of the work is to describe psychoactive plants and substances that were used by scientists during scientific discoveries and to bring these specific discoveries and scientists closer. The search and research method (questionnaire) was used for the solution. A total of 301 respondents filled out the questionnaire voluntarily. Through research, I discovered that the most used psychedelic substances in scientific discoveries were LSD, DMT, and mescaline. These substances are obtained from the following psychoactive plants: Purple sedum (Claviceps purpurea), Reed sedge (Phalaris arundinacea), Mimosia hostilis, Williams's hawthorn (Lopophora williamsii) or San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi). This result was also confirmed by the analysis of the results from the questionnaire. The result of this work is that these psychoactive species and substances show great potential for application in various fields, including in scientific research. So they certainly have an effect on creativity, insight and overall mental state. For this reason, further research and more legal benevolence with which subsequent research is associated would be good.
